Hindustan Petroleum L P GAS / Forcing on me to buy gas stove and by products of the agency

1 India Review updated:

I visited the agency of hpcl lpg gas services at c b d navi mumbai behind c b d bus depot on 12th oct 2007 with the full document proof and money to get a new gas connection for my home and i read an advertisement saying not mandatory to buy a gas stove at the same gas dealer. I inquired about the gas stove and the are forcing me to buy a minimum priced gas stove at thier outlet (rupees 1408) which would cost to about 1000 of the brand i would want buy at my choice's shop and earlier i was told that the gas would be delivered at my doorstep in the next 24 hours and now that i have asked many questions to them specially about the gas stove they are telling me that we will tell the company person to verify the address where i live and then they will decide.

I was always proud my dad mr i j cardoza a retired employee of hpcl who has served hpcl for 38 years now in his 80's has seen the best sides of the company changing names and still getting the best treatment from the company and i have seen the company from my early childhood where we used to stay in hpcl colony getting this treatment and it is really sorry to go in for another provider like bpcl or indane or any private if any.

    I am also facing the same problem in Coimbatore. They told me if you want connection you should buy a gas stove and lighter.

    I have also faced the same problems I enquired for connection at LPG and Bhart Gas both at Kalamboli, I was told to buy the oven from them otherwise they are not selling the connection seperately. I was told to pay an amount of Rs 4500 for the connections along with the basic oven model.
    Is anybody having any idea about where to comlain for further necessary action to be taken against this agencies ?
